change svp management_ip

change svp management_ip


The change svp management_ip command is used to configure the IP address of a management port on SVP. Both IPv4 and IPv6 addresses can be configured, which is used by terminals to access the disk array.


change svp management_ip eth_port_id=? ip_type=? [ ipv4_address=? mask=? [ gateway_ipv4=? ] ] [ ipv6_address=? prefix_length=? [ gateway_ipv6=? ] ] [ delete_gateway=? ]





eth_port_id=? Indicates the port ID.

To obtain the value, run "show svp management_ip".

ip_type=? Indicates the IP address type.

The value can be an IPv4 or IPv6 address.

ipv4_address=? Indicates the IPv4 address.

IPv4 address does not meet the type requirement. Only A, B, and C addresses are supported.

mask=? Indicates the IPv4 subnet mask of the management port.


gateway_ipv4=? Indicates the configured IPv4 gateway.


ipv6_address=? Indicates the configured IPv6 address of the management port.


prefix_length=? Indicates the configured IPv6 subnet mask.


gateway_ipv6=? Indicates the configured IPv6 gateway of the management port.


delete_gateway Whether the original gateway needs to be deleted.

The value can be "yes" or "no", where:

  • "yes": The gateway of the port will be deleted.
  • "no": The gateway of the port will not be deleted.



Usage Guidelines

  • When the maintenance terminal and the storage system are not in the same network segment, the terminal cannot access the storage system. You have to add a router to the maintenance terminal and a gateway to the storage system so that the maintenance terminal can access the storage system.
  • Before performing the operation, ensure that the address you entered is valid and the IPv4 address must not start with 0.
  • Changing the IP address of the management port may disconnect a user that has logged in from the storage system, so log in to the storage system again after changing the IP address.
  • The maintenance terminal can access the storage system both through IPv4 and IPv6 addresses.
  • This command cannot be executed on the CLI to which you log in using the controller's management IP address. Before running this command, log in to the CLI using the SVP's management IP address.


Set the IPv4 address of a specified management network port to, the subnet mask to, and the gateway address to The command output varies depending on a specific product.

admin:/>change svp management_ip eth_port_id=P1 ip_type=ipv4_address ipv4_address= mask= gateway_ipv4=
DANGER: You are about to modify the IP address of the management network port on the SVP. This operation may disconnect you from the SVP. 
Suggestion: Ensure that the entered IP address is available.
